What e-liquid should I use?
It's very important to ensure that you pair the right type of e-juice with a vape mod in order to maximise your experience and so that the mod is able to do what it is designed to do best. There is a very large scope in terms of vape mods and their power, but typically vape mods are designed to be more high-powered. Where pod kits are designed to produce less vapour, vape mods are designed to produce large clouds of vapour. Because of this, it is important to use high VG e-liquids as the higher ratio of VG is what helps to create the large vapour clouds. Browse our shortfill selection to find an excellent high VG e-liquid to enjoy with your vape mod.
Currently, these are the top vape mod starter kits available, and picking one of them will make it simpler to start vaping in a more advanced way.
